Video of Ben Storick laying it down with his JS Models Vision Frenzy.
First video up from the 2009 Miramar Fun Fly is Sam Gammo flying his T-Rex 700 nitro.
This event was a first for the Miramar RC Flyers. Attendance was high, weather was great, and people had a great time. There were no raffles or contests, however, the flying was so good, no one seemed to mind. Overall, the event was a great success for a small club and we have plenty of videos coming.
The 2009 FAI F3C Heli World Championship is quickly approaching which is being held in Muncie, ID the week prior to IRCHA. I’ve found two sites that cover news on the team’s efforts leading up to the championship.
First is the Hirobo Japan team that have created a very cool blog talking about their preparation efforts on their heli’s and about team members.
The second is the homepage for the US team. They are still looking for donations to help support the team this year, anything you can spare helps!

Futaba Japan released a notification last week that it’s come to their attention there are counterfeit Futaba products on the market. Particularly the Futaba GY401 Gyro and Futaba S9254 tail servo are noted in the release. These products will obviously not have the same performance as genuine Futaba products.
We all know about the issues with the Align stock shouldered metal screws that come in the Align T-Rex 600 and 700 kits. There have been several third party products released utilizing separate washers and screws. Well now Lunsford Racing has decided to join the mix with their new one-piece shouldered titanium screw specifically designed for the T-Rex.
G-Force Technologies has been the leader in bringing out high quality and high performance products for the heli market. Here at RC Heli Resource we have reviewed a number of great offerings from G-Force so when we got the opportunity to review the new adjustable clutch block and motor mounts for the T-Rex 700N we were more than happy to oblige. Read on to see the full review.

Inertia RC, known for their successful Inertia 860 gyro, just released info on their new flybarless unit. It should be released the first week of August so we should be seeing it in action at IRCHA. The preliminary pricing has been set at $380 or below. While currently in final testing, time will tell how it will compare to the Mikado V-Bar, the current leader in flybarless heli systems.
This year at IRCHA we are doing it big. No longer do we need to self-promote. The goal now is to increase the reach of the industry companies to the customer base. Big or small, foreign or domestic, paid advertiser or not….you can now shine on RCHeliResource.Com. Whether you are at IRCHA 2009 or not this is your chance to show your 2009/2010 products. We are dedicating 2 resources at IRCHA to doing just this. Participants will receive a 2009 RCHeliResource Media Kit, dedicated page for their marketing at IRCHA 2009 with photos videos and information collected by our team before and during IRCHA 2009.

Flight instruction is back and it’s time for YOU to choose what you want to learn. After 3 days I will take the leading maneuver and make an instructional video on it… thorough as usual. Remember, if you have any suggestions for future maneuvers to learn, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply leave a comment on this post.
UPDATE: Due to the fact that this poll has tied so many times and it is still close, we will be doing two back to back lessons. Both videos will be complete a week from today.
What should be the next maneuver for flight instruction?
